Watching the first part of #DeathInBollywood and I feel heartbroken for Jiah and her family. She was just 16 when she performed in Nishabd and heavily glamorised and sexualised from then on. Her missing tracksuit and the unlocked and wiped phone is terrifying. 🥺— 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐚 𝐒𝐚𝐥𝐡𝐨𝐭𝐫𝐚 💫 (@_MSalhotra) January 12, 2021
After watching the first episode of #DeathInBollywood - it prompts more Qs about #JiahKhan ‘s passing away than closure. As a viewer, even I’m asking the most basic Qs in the investigation, so wonder how Mumbai Police / CBI did such a “shoddy” job. Whatever! Rest in peace JK! 💔— Raj Baddhan (@RajBaddhan) January 11, 2021
The BBC's docuseries revolves around Jiah's life and what led to her committing suicide. The makers of the Death In Bollywood arrived in 2019 in Bombay to do the research and the shoot of the series.
